Profile on Style

by admin

Profile on Style is a weekly post that explores the motivations behind GW’s fashion trends. We’ll show you the most interesting aspects of GW style, and then try to make some sense of it all. Keep your eyes open for a reporter and photographer walking around because you might become the latest trendsetter.

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Regina Fong.

Major: Marketing
Influence: Her mother
Outfit: Shoes, Jeffrey Campbell; tights, Hue; dress, Massimo Dutti; jacket, Zara; earrings, Accessorize

With a designer for a mother, it’s no wonder where senior Mari Laperashvili gets her style. Here, she wears a simple black dress over tights as well as a paisley printed jacket with gray trim accents. The jacket’s metallic trim gives the outfit a vintage feel. The real showstopper, though, is her leather wedged studded heels, gorgeous in shape and simple in design.

Melissa Delgado. Regina Fong | Hatchet Photographer.

Name: Melissa Delgado
Year: 2012
Hometown: Atlanta
Major: Psychology
Influence: Mila Kunis
Outfit: Jacket, Jones New York; jeans, Express

Black is easy to work with, but sometimes it’s worth adding some color to your footwear. Senior Melissa Delgado is wearing a pair of light green boots with a tan wedge. The wedge adds height as well as a little edge without making the shoe too uncomfortable. She pairs this with a skinny pair of jeans and a stylish gray jacket with a belt.
